Fashnachts / Fasnachts in Chicago?
I realize that Easter was last week, but I'm hoping that someone can tell me where I can get some Fashnachts / Fasnachts in Chicago next year.
When I lived in Maryland, I'd get them from a local bakery run by a Mennonite woman (it was one of those "out-of-the-back-of-the-house" operations), and I'd take them to work at the Tracing Center and everybody'd scarf them right up. The last year that I worked there, I think I took in 8 or 9 dozen. It got to the point where people would ask me to let them know when they were going to be available again so I could pick a few dozen up for them!
Anyway, I'd really appreciate it if someone can tell me where these are sold in the Chicago metro area.
Nope. This isn't what I'm talking about at all.
The Fashnacht is basically a gigantic glazed donut, except that the hole is filled with another piece of dough, almost like a gigantic donut cutter was used and the dough was stuffed back in before frying. I've been gone from Maryland for 12 years, but if I remember correctly, these things are about 6 - 7 inches across!
